Oscar, that is. Monday he had a reaction to the sulfa antibiotic, but we stopped it immediately. Tuesday his culture results came back with the identification of the bacteria in his lungs as pasteurella, which apparently frequently causes pneumonia in rabbits. The vet says that it responds quickly to doxycycline, so he started on that yesterday and all seems well. The only lingering problem is a persistent cough so they still have him doped on the vicodin/cough suppressant so the coughing doesn't irritate the bronchial system or cause his trachea to collapse (in which case we will be back at square one). So it's all good news. This morning I had him in the park for a couple hours just chatting with people and he really enjoyed the time outside - until the vicodin kicked in and he was sprawled out snoozing on the pavement, but that was sweet too. The weather change seems to be helping as well - down to the 70s today, after almost a week of 95 degree heat. I'm appreciating the reprieve as well.
Yesterday I went shopping with Cara for a few hours. No outing with Cara would be complete without hitting a yarn store, and I was particularly impressed by the sweet women at The Stitching Bee. I picked up two skeins of Rowan Calmer, one in blue and one in white, to add in some stripes/colorwork with the red Calmer I have planned for some knitted baby item (hat and cardigan, maybe?). I also picked up the Ann Norling Fruit Cap pattern. The strawberry one is just too cute to not make.
An update on the fair isle baby cardigan - front and back are done and I am casting on for the sleeves tonight. Then the button band, some seaming, and it will be another FO. Pics, soon, I hope.
Ooooh - massive thunderstorm. Off to calm the pug before he starts in with the coughing. (I just love thunderstorms - so beautifully violent and all.)
